Citadel of Namur

Explore one of Belgium's greatest historic sites, the Citadel of Namur. Located at the confluence of the Sambre and the Meuse, the majestic Citadel of Namur has survived through many centuries. Visiting the Citadel will take you back through 2,000 years of history.

The Citadel of Namur was the residence of the Counts of Namur in the Middle Ages, and was converted into a tourism and events site by King Léopold II. Today, you can walk around, take guided tours, or attend some of the many events held at the site all year round.

There are three guided tours starting out from the Terra Nova Visitor Centre.

Explore the recently restored underground levels. The 500-metre immersive tour will take you through fully restored passages to the heart of the historic depths below the citadel, with a sound and light show. Projections and 3D effects enhance the experience of this new guided tour.

And then there's the Terra Nova Visitor Centre, which has an educational exhibition recounting 2,000 years of urban and military history, presented through the history of Namur and its citadel.

And finally, you can enjoy the ride on the Tourist Train with a commentary as you admire the magnificent panoramic views of the city and the Meuse valley.

The Citadel of Namur is a Wallonia Major Heritage site. A place where you'll find a new perspective on history…
